  1. I have a bunch of content like "Best Mouse for World of Warcraft" Mouse and World of Warcraft were just examples, I do not actually have any content targeting that specific keyword. It works really well as long as you actually understand what a gamer would want for the game. Tip: The keyword search volumes are not accurate for trendy keywords like that. Especially if it's a brand new game. The number one result is hXXps://www.armchairempire.com/Reviews/gaming-mouse-reviews/wow SEMRush ~1k reports clicks a month to that page but it's probably more like 20-30k right now due to the release of WOW Classic. With stuff like that, if you know how to bait clicks with the "Click For Price" buttons, you can easily get a 25% CTR with some testing and the EPC (real average earnings per click) is usually like $1. Intitle test reveals there are 13 competing pages directly targeting the keyword. The SEMRush page score is a 56 though, which is quite high. With SEO Quake enabled, I see a DS 12 TF 14 domain in the #7 spot, which is directly targeting the keyword, so it's certainly page-1-able for an individual. The main issue there would be timing and rank transition. It's just too late IMHO, but who knows. I'm sure there's a bunch of sites that will create content for keywords like that since all of Blizzard/Activision games are super popular. I usually go for lesser known games/companies. It would definitely have been worth doing that 4-5 months before the release of WOW Classic. It might be worth it for Bing since you can rank the page instantly by using the Bing Webmaster Tools. Reminder: The intitle test only works if you are on the very last page of the results for that keyword and it doesn't work at all in Bing. If you are not on the last page, Google will display a random number and I have no idea what that indicates. So the keyword: "best mouse for fortnite", there are 58 pages with the keyword in the title, not 158.
  2. So, this is a feature that I've really been looking for in a text editor. It really improves your ability to edit content because if you read it your own writing, you have a tendency to be blind to your own grammar errors. I find that it's a lot easier to fix grammar mistakes, if you listen to the words being spoken back to you. The feature is hidden away under the review ribbon. There are obviously other solutions, but I think it's really nice that it's built right into Microsoft word now.
  3. I'm on the it's too late side of this.
  4. This news is late but the expiration date that .co.uk domain owners had to reserve the .uk version of their domain name expired in July. To localize your site to the UK region, you will have to mess around editing your code or Wordpress theme. For Google/Yandex: <html lang='en-GB'> Optional: <link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-US" href="https://the-exact-link-of-the-page.uk/whatever-content"></link> For Bing: <meta content='UK' name='locale'> <meta content='en-GB' name='culture'> <meta content='£' name='currency'> This works for multiple regions that speak English, such as Canada and Australia, but you'll have to modify your code appropriately. That code should localize the site to the region with out backlinks but, obviously you won't rank very well with out some.
  5. A lot of Youtubers use https://incompetech.com/music/
  6. No idea but I find Amazon's new arrivals very helpful. Google : Amazon.com $niche new arrivals Then bookmark the pages as they're a pain in the ass to find. It's an excellent source for ideas if you're doing Azon stuff. Edit: Check prime obviously.
  7. Mystery revealed. It's called "Rank Transition Function." From experience, new sites and new content get the "Initially Inverse Response Transition" and the dampened response transition seems more common on older content/sites. Note that these functions apply after forcing the page into the index using inspect URL -> Request index in the Google Search Console. https://patents.google.com/patent/US8924380B1/en So, there's no sandbox, there's just that. Length of time is 70 days or more. Note: This is old, but I didn't know about it and I don't think most people do.
  8. People have told me that I'm paranoid for using domain privacy. https://abcnews.go.com/US/social-media-influencer-convicted-violent-plot-hijack-internet/story?id=62515433
  9. I hope this isn't an update from Google... Many of my sites had pages drop out of the index or are being hit by mostly negative fluctuations. The pages that dropped out can be returned by requesting index on the pages but sometimes they drop back out. People are also reporting that previously penalized (algo not manual actions) sites have returned from the dead and are ranking again.
  10. Since I forgot to reply to this thread before. They made the metric worse. Between this and the influx of image scraper site links, I think Moz metrics are borderline useless at this point.
  11. Lately almost all of my sites have been getting links from image scraper sites that link back to the source of the image with a followed link and the anchor text set to a period. I doubt these links have any real benefit to rankings but they are skewing link data tools. The image link spam is being done on a massive scale and seems to be in an effort to promote CPA offers. I didn't poke around the sites too much as these sites are blackhat and could be redirecting to anything including malware, but I got redirected to an adult game CPA offer when I checked one. I think this might be the nail in the coffin for certain SEO metrics.
  12. I got hit. No huge percentages but a bunch of my sites are worse off. I can't really see the pattern right now. Honestly, I think they toned down something and a bunch of sites that were previously effected by something they did are now performing better.
  13. I've never had this happen before. I built out a landing page / funnel around a specific offer. I usually build this out first before I try to apply to the affiliate program so I can show them the landing page. Between that and being incorporated, I've never been declined on an affiliate network or from a company with an affiliate program. Until today. Apparently due to sales tax nexus laws, this company does not work with affiliates from my entire state. Thankfully, a different company with a similar offer will work with me, but I have to redo much of the campaign material. Lesson learned. If you're going to build out a funnel that is specific to an offer/company, make sure you can get approved first and show them something similar to what you plan to do.
  14. I would say picking the right keywords and understanding at what keyword competition level your content can compete at is king. It works consistently across all of my sites. And I really don't recommend using Moz to try to find those keywords out.
  15. Looks like Mike was right. /facepalm I'm pretty sure they're baking rankings into the calculation. I believe I can prove this as I have a domain that Moz reports zero links (there are some Moz just hasn't found them) and it reports DA 2 PA 6 which is an improvement from DA 0 PA 4. With Moz, their target audience is agencies and larger corporations. Depending on what you use the metrics for, this can be useful but that's not really what I personal use SEO data tools for. To give you an idea how accurate this is, my PA 6 page of content is beating a PA 42 and a PA 47 and those pieces of content are on the same topic. For link prospecting, it's useful as the metrics do represent "value" but not exclusively link equity.
